DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED. PLEASE CHECK BACK FOR WHEN THIS WILL BE RESCHEDULED. 

Join us for a discussion with former Gov. Mitch Daniels, president of Purdue University, and Dr. Wayne A.I. Frederick, president of Howard University, on rising costs and the higher education system. The discussion will focus on how states, institutions of higher education, and the federal government can work to promote affordability and accountability.

The American higher education system is plagued with skyrocketing costs and lackluster graduation rates. Lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have expressed displeasure with the status quo. With reauthorization of the Higher Education Act on the horizon, there exists potential for bipartisan reforms that improve the postsecondary education system for American students and their families.
